Gaza mortar shells target Israeli forces searching for Hamas tunnels; Israel responds with airstrike, tank fire and declares border area a closed military zone; Hamas evacuates two schools as a precautionary measure.21:44 04.05.16 | 4 comments
To what extent do you estimate that the PA's success (or lack thereof) will speed/slow the rate of negotiations between Israel and the PA? Will UN status affect the final borders, etc that are agreed upon? Does the primary obstacle in negotiations exist with the international community or with the two parties? What would need to change in Israeli and/or PA society/politics/economy for a peace agreement to happen soon? To what extent is Hamas a player in the negotiations? Could a peace agreement exist against their will, and if so, how would that work? Thank you for your time!
